On behalf of the executive board of the Labor & Employment Law Society at Rutgers School of Law-Newark, Iím proud to invite you to attend the 2010 Labor & Employment Law Society Debate Forum. This yearís topic is as follows: "Should arbitration clauses in employment agreements be enforceable in court?" The debate will occur on November 3rd from 4:30-5:30PM in the Baker Trial Courtroom at Rutgers School of Law-Newark. We are planning to host a debate between two students from different New York City area law schools. We are currently in the process of inviting law students and faculty members from Cardozo Law, Brooklyn Law, Seton Hall Law, Fordham Law, and NYU Law. We are looking for a someone to debate on the negative side of the issue (against the enforceability of arbitration clauses). Any interested law students who would like to debate, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The debate will include a ten-minute argument by the student on the affirmative side, a ten-minute argument by the student on the negative side, a five-minute rebuttal by the student on the affirmative side, and a five-minute rebuttal by the student on the negative side. Debaters are encouraged to thoroughly research applicable case precedents and any applicable statutes or administrative regulations relevant to the topic.
Please feel free to pass this invitation on to any students, faculty, or administrators you might know that are interested in labor and employment law!
